Ring of Honor on Sinclair
September 15, 2012
Report by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com

Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s ROH on Sinclair recap. Its a “Road Rage” edition this week, so if you all are ready, then let’s get on with the show!

We see video highlighting what happened last week in the show closing brawl between the House of Truth & S.C.U.M. before the usual intro.

Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness welcome us to the show, from the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI as this week is a “Road Rage” from last month’s “Boiling Point” Internet PPV.

We see video of comments from Charlie Haas, who calls the House of Truth a dysfunctional family. Haas says that the nucleus of the problem is Michael Elgin because he is a crybaby. Haas says that when his kids act up, he takes them behind the woodshed and that is what he is going to do to Elgin tonight.

Before the 1st match, Truth Martini wants Kevin Kelly in the ring for an interview. Martini says he can predict the future and that tonight, Kevin Steen will retain the title but at Death Before Dishonor, Rhino will face Steen and the World Title comes home to the House of Truth. Kelly brings up the dissension between Elgin & Strong, but Martini blows it off. Elgin has an announcement and says he will face the World Champion at Glory by Honor, but Strong cuts him off and says Martini promised him it. Strong says he is now officially on strike from the House of Truth. Strong then says he will sit in the front row and watch Elgin fail, then walks away before the next match.

    We go to comments from Steen, who says that October 13 is the match a lot of people have been waiting for. Michael Elgin calls himself “Unbreakable” and a lot of people have hope that he will take the title from him. It does not matter that Elgin calls himself “unbreakable” because he will show people that Elgin is not unbeatable. Steen says that he will walk out of Toronto the same way he walked out last time . . . as Ring of Honor World Champion.

Cole says he has worked hard for the Television Title. Eddie was a tremendous Television champion and he wants to be as good as Eddie was. They will bring out the best in each other and on October 13th, the best man will walk out as the champion.

    Also at Glory by Honor XI, the new ROH Tag Team champions will defend their titles.

  • The final topic is the Survival of the Fittest Tournament, which will take place in October on Ring of Honor TV.
